I am the Director of Chrysolis, an UK-based non-profit organization I helped start in 2012, with the aim of engaging a diverse range of people in conversation about the story of Jesus and his potential relevance for life today.
Much of my time is spent in contexts where Jesus — or anything to do with God — is not typically discussed in depth. I love interacting with skeptical audiences in universities, schools, bars, cafes and theaters, and anywhere else I’m invited, including radio and television appearances.
I have spent much of my adult life founding and developing Christian communities on university campuses in Britain and Romania and am a regular speaker at conferences and outreach events in different countries.
I was previously part of the writing team for the website of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship and a columnist at the Church of England Newspaper. My first book, The Myth of the Non-Christian: Engaging Atheists, Nominal Christians and the Spiritual but not Religious, was published by InterVarsity Press in 2016, and my second — Campus Lights: Students Living and Speaking for Jesus Around the World — will be published by Muddy Pearl in July 2019.
My education includes a Certificate in Theological and Pastoral Studies (concentrated in Christian Apologetics) from Oxford University, an MA in Evangelism & Leadership from Wheaton College, and a BA (hons) in English Literature from Cardiff University.
I’m married to Whitney, a lovely South Carolinian school teacher, and we have three young children.
